My beauty secrets, with Millie Kendall
What are your everyday make-up must-haves?
How do you look after your hair, and style it in a hurry?
Any bodycare favourites?
Love Diptyque Body Lotions, they smell great and dry fast.
Nails: nude, bright or au naturel?!
Nude fingers and bright toes.
Any beauty indulgences you try and make time for?
Gosh, I wish I did more. I do use a service called Perfect10Mobile Beauty, they have a team of top therapists and manicurists that come to where you are, home or office. So when you are busy it really helps. I can type and have my eyebrows done at the same time.
What are the best beauty tricks you’ve ever been shown ?
Fill in your eyebrows with a harder formula of pencil, and stroke the pencil onto brow to give the illusion of hair. Always hold eye and blush brushes flat/parallel to the face and not perpendicular when applying powder. It blends better. Apply lip liner AFTER lipstick.
Thanks for the brilliant tips and product recommendations, Millie!
